    That's a pretty good link Lady Hobbs, thanks for posting it

    I didn't see that one before, but I knew the bristles are toxic. That is why I used tweezers. There not too much in a reef tank that is safe to touch with your bare hand, and IMO, rubber gloves

    I do beleive they do. The rest of him wasted no time in crawling away at speeds that were very fast for a bristle worm.

    LOL, I've seen pictures of even creepier ones than that one.

    I ended up reading about this darned thing last night before going to bed and then dreaming about them. But I read about trapping them by putting a closed container.....like a Glad container with the lid......cut an X in the side about the size of the worm and push the X inward. That way the worm can get in but has a hard time getting back out against the points of the X. And stick some raw shrimp inside the container to lure the worm in.

    I'd have to kill them all. Who wants a 20" worm like this in their tank. *Hobbs shudders*

    I've got something very similar residing in my reef tank:

    OMG Kaybee, that worm is hugh. Cool pics.

    After doing a lot more reading, I have found out that he bristle worm that I have is a fireworm. Still safe and all so I'm OK with that

    I even tried to find him again this morning, not to remove him, but to get a few pics.

    The neat things I have to look forward too.

    Rubber gloves for tank maintenance???? Never even crossed my mind.
    Warning; Bulldog Pleco guarding my Sons tank now..

    Please remember; every keystroke has a consequence.

    For water changes, gravel vacs, and sump maintenance, I don't use gloves. No chance of critter contact there as I use filter socks and only dry rock was placed in my sump. When fragging corals or handling rock I will. Whenever I can use tweezers or something like that I will. Better safe than sorry.

    Bristleworms are great for cleaning up the tank, but when they get big they often start eating the base of corals. The will usually come up through a hole in the LR so you don't ever know why your coral is in distress until it dies and you find the hole chrewed through it.
